Remodeling Projects with the Highest ROI

With the housing market booming as it is right now, it’s important to consider investing in property to turn around and sell for profit. One way you can do that is by purchasing homes that can use some updates but utilizing the remodeling options that will have the best return on your investment. 

That is exactly what you’ll find here. The list below goes into detail about several remodeling options that are not only great for homes but also for your ROI. When you purchase a home to sell, make sure to consider these options below to help you get the most out of your purchase and resell. You’ll be glad you did when you see how well it works out and how it attracts buyers to the home.

Siding Options

There are numerous house siding options to choose from that offer low maintenance, durability, and appeal to the potential buyer. When you’re considering options to redo the outside, take a moment to look at the house from a variety of angles. The street view, in the driveway, and even the back of the home help you to get the full picture. You want to choose something that is not only durable and low-maintenance but also offers curb appeal and value. 

Some of those options that do just that include:

  • Stucco 
  • Wood
  • Fiber cement siding
  • Stone Veneer
  • Brick
  • Metal

One of the most popular options is fiber cement siding. Not only is this a low-maintenance option, it also gives you the most variety in the way the home looks as well. It’s a great choice to get a huge ROI.

New Garage Door

One vital part of the home is the garage area. When the door doesn’t work properly or looks run down, it can be a detriment to the resale value. It’s easy to add a new door and get a great ROI. People want the garage of the home to work properly and protect their items that are stored there. When it comes to the cost of a garage door, this is actually a great way to invest into the home and get a return. You can easily add a new door to update the look of the residence and offer security to the new buyers.


One item in the home that may need to receive some TLC is the basement area. Is the basement in the property heated or closed in for use? By taking time to remodel the basement into a climate-controlled space, you can increase the square footage that the home provides. Providing heating for basements is easy to do with radiant floor heating. This allows you to heat the area without having to change anything in the current HVAC system you may already have. 

This type of heating allows efficiency, durability, and comfort all at the same time. You’re sure to love the ROI you’ll receive from this addition and the increase in space.

The Flooring

Take a look at the flooring in the home. Does it look worn out or old? Consider replacing it with faux wood flooring to help with the ROI of the property. There are so many faux wood options out there that provide a classic elegance to the home without all the maintenance needed in real wood flooring. You can choose from a variety of styles and types, such as laminate wood, to help update the inside of the home. This is a huge appeal to those who are looking to buy which will help you to sell the home quicker once completed.

These seemingly simple updates can help make a huge difference in the return you receive on your property investments. By installing these along the way, you can turn around and resale the home for a profit larger than you might have first thought. These durable renovation options help you to add value and appeal to potential buyers down the road.
